The theme song from Berlin Station, Bowie's I'm Afraid of Americans used to be mine.I always mute the phone when I'm in public. The above was just a joke.
The annoying thing is not so much the ring tone but the long, loud, meaningless jabbering that people do after it.A friend of mine pointed out that other than when you're alone, ring tones have the ability to annoy others around you. Personally, I get almost no phone calls, preferring silent communication such as chat. That and the fact the the signal in the studio is very weak, the phone mostly won't ring.
